Over the last 3 billion years, we existed harmoniously with natural light…

All creatures developed finely-tuned light-sensing instruments...

that optimise their lives in line with the natural 24 hour cycle of the world. Not only does its effect amplify the beauty throughout the spaces we inhabit, but it has a major effect on our biology, emotions, daily routines and more recently understood, our health and well-being.

The Great Indoors

And in just 150 years, we have turned this on our heads, now spending 87% of our time indoors, under artificial light sources.

Creating a community of lighting enthusiasts...

The Light Tribe exists to create a community of lighting enthusiasts that can help change the way we design optimal spaces for humans, reconnecting us to the Genesis of light that we have been used to for so long.

The Power of Light Video

Light floods through our lives on a daily basis. It is present in so many forms and is arguably the most influential force on how we perceive and connect with the world around us. It is our great pleasure to introduce our immersive film experience 'The Power of Light' which is a dedication to this magical medium in all its glory...

Liz West is a British artist (b.1985) who graduated from Glasgow School of Art in 2007. West’s broad body of work encompasses site-specific installations, sculpture, and wall-based artwork. West creates vivid environments that mix luminous colour and radiant light and aims to provoke a heightened sensory awareness in the viewer through her works.

British artist Bruce Munro is best known for producing large, immersive, light-based installations, which often employ a massing of components by the thousands. An artistic diarist, he has spent over thirty years collecting and recording ideas and images in his sketchbooks, to which he returns over time for source material. Frequently, Munro’s subject matter is his own experience of fleeting moments of rapport with the world and existence in its largest sense—of being part of life’s essential pattern. His reoccurring motif is the use of light on an environmental scale in order to evoke an emotional response in the viewer. His work has been shown at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Waddesdon...
